Ali Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she's a thief, and now she's about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who's as sexy as he is stern....

After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke's own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bislang das beste Buch in der Lucky Harbor Serie. 31. Juli 2013
Von MaLu
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein Buch zum Lachen und Weinen, mit ein paar leidenschaftlichen Szenen, typisch Jill Shalvis eben.

Die Charaktere von Luke und Ali sind komplex gestaltet. Luke ist emotional verschlossen, stur und nimmt sich eine Auszeit von seinem Job als Lt. Detective in San Fransisco. Ali wurde von ihrem Freund betrogen und sitzengelassen, hat kein Dach mehr über dem Kopf und wird beschuldigt gestohlen zu haben.
Jill Shalvis lässt die beiden streiten, scherzen und sich näher kommen, doch wie nah lässt Luke Ali an sich heran und umgekehrt? Ich musste es wissen, und hab das Buch an einem Tag verschlungen.

Das Buch ist eine seichte Krimigeschichte mit viel Humor und noch mehr Gefühl. Also einfach ein wunderbares Sommerbuch, das ich jedem wärmstens empfehlen kann.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another awesome Lucky Harbor Story! 29. Mai 2013
Von Amy (So Many Reads) - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Luke and Ali. Wow. I wasn't sure anyone could top Sawyer and Chloe (from Head Over Heels) in my mind, but I think Luke and Ali just might have. I will admit that after six books in a contemporary romance series I had my doubts that Jill could continue on with Lucky Harbor and still make them fresh, but she does. The plot in It Had To Be You brings a little element of suspense, too, which I always enjoy.

Luke is your typical brooding, alpha male who takes responsibility for many things that have gone wrong to those he loves. He constructs walls around his heart so he won't have to let anyone else in and disappoint them. Ali is a girl that has had a lot of crap dumped on her throughout life but still manages to see the glass as half full. I think she reminds all of us that we can choose to be happy and kick life's butt or we can let life kick our butt.

I love the dialogue Jill writes in her stories. There are so many lines I wanted to quote here but if I started it would be about half the book and I don't think Jill would appreciate that. I love the smart quips from the characters and the honesty that Ali brings to the story. She says things we are all thinking which is so refreshing. Luke is a bit surprised by her honesty, too, but it is one of the many things he loves about her. He tries very hard to resist Ali and she isn't throwing herself at him so it is great to see this budding romance.

The Lucky Harbor books are usually pretty hot and sexy with passionate characters. I actually really liked that It Had To Be You didn't have as many intimate scenes (or didn't appear to because I didn't really count) as the others. Luke and Ali waited a long time before they gave into a physical relationship and it fit them and the story well. It was fun getting to meet Jack and Leah (friends of Luke and Ali) and I look forward to their story next. I really enjoyed It Had To Be You and recommend it highly to anyone looking for a witty, dialogue-driven, sweet, sexy contemporary romance.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Silly 26. August 2013
Von Claire - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I usually love Jill Shalvis books and eagerly await the next one, but "It Had to Be You" is just plain silly and not up to her usual standard. The heroine was TSTL and I kept feeling as if the author was trying to write an episode of I Love Lucy rather than a romance story -- there were so many instances in which the heroine proved herself to be totally lacking in common sense that it became wildly irritating. For example: the police is on the case but she decides to break into Teddy's car with her friend? Stealing back the pot in the first place? I could go on. It is possible that this was intended to be a farce but if so, it fell totally flat for me and just gave me a real dislike of this silly heroine. I loved the hero but all this waffling back and forth ("we can't be together cause I'll hurt her") seemed forced and as an "obstacle" to their romance, it didn't feel real for a second. Also, he's a cop with common sense and every time the heroine made a dumb decision (she makes them constantly) I couldn't help but think how the charm would wear off once they were together forever, taking the shine off their HEA. Finally, this book felt as if it was being stretched to make the absolute minimum number of words for this format, it felt even "lighter" than most books in this genre. I'm sorry to be so "down" on a Shalvis book but really this one is just a bit too silly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best of Lucky Harbor! 4. Juni 2013
Von Jonetta (Ejaygirl) - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a big fan of this series and have really liked every story...until this one. I LOVED it!

It's one of those rarities where you have equally strong feelings for both main characters. Ali Winter has had a tough life but through it all, she's held her head up high and believed life would get better, not in a sappy way but more resolute. You couldn't help admiring her spirit. The town loves her.

Luke Hanover is one of the good guys, the person you can count on to do the right thing but underneath that determination is a bag full of guilt about the three times in his life where he fell short (in his own eyes) and he's starting to collapse under it.

How they meet
Ali was living with her dog of a boyfriend, Teddy, the town darling. He was renting Luke's house in Lucky Harbor, decided he was ending the lease (and their relationship) but didn't tell her until after he'd moved out. Luke shows up and finds Ali in all her underwear glory with nowhere to go. They agree she can stay until she finds another place to live.

The issues
Before Ali can begin figuring out a new life plan, money in Teddy's office ($50,000) turns up missing and all fingers point at the scorned ex-girlfriend. Luke's a SF detective who just wanted to come home for three weeks to rest and recover from a really bad case and just doesn't want to get involved.

The romance
Despite what his head wants to do, Luke can no more abandon the delightful and beautiful soul of Ali and repeatedly gives in to his heart. Ali knows the last thing she needs is another man to leave her (in three weeks) but their attraction to each other is pretty powerful. They both see each others' true nature and their chemistry is HOT. I don't think they ever made it to a bed until the end of the story.

The bottom line
Everything about this story just rocks! I laughed, cried, got angry, got caught up in the steamy moments... and through it all I cheered for Ali and Luke individually and for their relationship. The dialogue is just perfect and the characters around these two make the story fun and exciting. Don't worry about this being the 7th book in the series...a new round of main characters begins after every three books so you can start here and then go back (I can't believe I'm saying this). You'll thank me for this. It is my favorite of the series and I've enjoyed all of them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Shalvis delivers warmth, humor, and passion in Lucky Harbor No. 7 28. Mai 2013
Von Kim Adams - Veröffentlicht auf
I've wandered around, finally found somebody who could make me be true. - Frank Sinatra, IT HAD TO BE YOU.

Jill Shalvis returns to Lucky Harbor with Book 7 in the series, IT HAD TO BE YOU. Shalvis kicked off the series with three sisters who run the B&B - Maddie, Tara, and Chloe - in Books 1, 2, and 3. Readers loved the characters from this charming coastal town, so Shalvis delivered three strangers-turned-friends - Mallory, Amy, and Grace - in Books 5, 6, and 7. This time, Shalvis kicks off another trilogy of male friends, hunky public servants, in IT HAD TO BE YOU.

Luke, a police detective in San Francisco, escapes from a case gone wrong to his grandmother's home in Lucky Harbor. He inherited it form her and thought his last renter had vacated it. Except the renter stranded his former girlfriend in the house - a complication that Luke does not need. Ali recognizes her instant attraction to Luke, thinking he is a burglar, when he catchers her nearly naked in his house. Soon they share the complications in their lives - he carries the weight of a murder victim; she is a theft suspect. Luke lends his expertise in helping Ali clear her name In return, she sprinkles sunshine in his life. The plot follows a familiar formula ... yet Shalvis adds her signature "sweet but sexy" storytelling to memorize readers once again with Lucky Harbor. In between the sizzling passion, Ali delivers a revelation to Luke that she has the power to be happy ... and he has the same power. It is a simple reminder of why I read romance - it makes me happy.

IT HAD TO BE YOU is a standalone novel where characters from previous books are referenced but do not steal the thunder from the new characters unfolding in the plot. Recommended read for those who seek an escape through cozy contemporary romance.

I received an ARC from the publisher for my independent review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Lucky Harbor Series is Addicting! 30. Mai 2013
Von For Love and Books - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Last night I put my 4 year old to bed, and sat down to read a bit before I went to bed myself. I haven't been reading much lately, so I figured that I would read a few chapters and go to bed. Jill Shalvis had other plans for me! It Had to be You is the seventh installment in her Lucky Harbor series, and I have to say, it may be one of my favorites! I was hooked early on, and stayed up until 3:30 to finish.

It Had to be You is the story of Ali, the Lucky Harbor Florist who is incredibly down on her luck. Her live in boyfriend broke up with her, via text message (after she caught him cheating) and he forgot to tell her that the lease on their rental house was up. Of course, she learns this a little too late - when the homes owner shows up to find her nearly naked in the kitchen yelling to her new-ex's voicemail!

From this awkward kitchen scene, I was hooked. I literally could not put this one down! Sure, it was slightly predictable. (What romance book isn't? That's why we love them, right??) And the mystery? A bit hokey, but none the less the way that Luke became fiercely protective of Ali made me swoon all the more!

I cannot express to you how much I loved Luke Hanover. He is one of my favorite Hero's in a LONG LONG time!! I loved how honest he was, how real and how believable. I just loved him. (I am still so gushy, days later! I can't even write a coherent review of this guy!!)

And Ali? I loved her. I was so angry at her at moments - mostly involving her family and how she allows them to walk all over her. But I just loved her. I loved all that she'd overcome. I loved that she didn't take crap from anyone, especially not Luke. She was just wonderful!

If you're a fan of Romance, I cannot recommend Jill Shalvis and the Lucky Harbor series enough!!
